As part of our new series on the best stores in the world, Mijia Zhang, designer of New York–based knitwear line PH5, shares one of her favorite places to shop.

My favorite store hands down is LN-CC in London. It's the coolest store I've ever been to. It's a concept shop combining men’s and women’s clothing, music, books, and a bar. I like it because it's hidden and artsy — I had to make an appointment with them before I went. Every time you visit, you feel as if you are in a gallery. They change their installations four times a year and treat clothes as part of the art installations. When it's time to change the installation, the store closes down for a significant amount of time.

I first got to know LN-CC as an online shop when I was studying in New York. When I moved to London to work for Christopher Kane, I found out that it was literally next door to my office. It's safe to say that I spent a lot of my salary on their drinks. — Mijia Zhang
